Holovis launches the Li-Fly attraction

Holovis launches the Li-Fly attraction
December 30, 2018

Holovis has introduced Li-Fly, a patented turn-key attraction that completely ‘re-volves’ the traditional flying theatre experience by taking guests out of their seats and letting them soar through content as if truly flying.

Li-Fly uses a unique 3-DOF motion system that securely holds and tilts passengers into a prone position before elevating them over an ultra-high-resolution dome.

Introducing the concept, Holovis Creative Director, Peter Cliff.“We have advanced this popular attraction format from a traditional passive lean-back experience into an active one that actually delivers true sensations of flying,” says Holovis creative director, Peter Cliff.

The scalable attraction features surge (forward and backwards motion), one metre of heave (up and down movement) and seats that rotate through a full 360-degrees. With this combination of movements - plus the lying rather than sitting riding position - guests soar through the media content as if truly flying.

Holovis has also unveiled a second model called Li-Fly Hex. This comes with 6-DOF motion including rotational and directional movement on three perpendicular axis. These are pitch (forward and backwards tilt), roll (side to side), yaw (left and right turn), heave (up and down) and sway (left to right).

Both Li-Fly and Li-Flex are offered as multisensory experiences combining visuals, audio, perfectly synched motion, SFX and real-time media. These are connected to data capture mechanics that measure rider reactions to take passengers on a personalised journey.

The multi-projector array in the dome is perfectly aligned, geometrically set up and colour matched using Holovis’s proprietary PixControl solution. This laser-based auto-alignment system ensures the projected images are pixel perfect every time. The system is simple to operate for non-technical staff.

The Holovis Hifiniti immersive dome audio surrounds each guest with a 7:2 shower of directional sound and audio effects, delivering an uncompromised spatial experience. Crossfades between multiple asynchronous audio tracks are also programmed to give smooth transitions between scenes and key creative triggers in the real-time media.

After launching Li-Fly at IAAPA Attractions Expo in November, Holovis is now in talks with a number of potential clients.

Holovis were  recently presented with the 2018 Brass Ring Award for Best Major Attraction under $3 million for the Justice League: A Call For Heroes experience at Madame Tussauds Sydney. This walk-through attraction allowed guests to star in the attraction alongside the wax superheroes.
